Anthony Scaramucci: Trump Should Have Been 'Much Harsher' On White Supremacists

Other enemies are allegedly working to subvert U.S. President Donald Trump

Fired former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci criticized President Donald Trump on Sunday for not clearly condemning the display of violence from white nationalists at a Saturday rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left at least three dead and 35 more injured.

"Well, obviously, I wish they would give me a bar of soap and tell me to go wash my mouth out in the bathroom and move on", he said. 'I think he would have needed to have been much harsher as it related to the white supremacists'. It's actually terrorism. And whether its domestic or global terrorism, with the moral authority of the presidency, you have to call that stuff out.

Violence broke out Saturday at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Trump has come under intense criticism for his response to clashes between white nationalist groups ― including members of neo-Nazi and KKK groups ― and counter-protesters, which came to a head Saturday when a 20-year-old OH man allegedly plowed his vehicle into a group of anti-racist demonstrators, killing a 32-year-old woman and injuring at least 19 others. He likes doing the opposite of what the media thinks he's going to do. "I think he's of the impression there is hatred on all sides".

"I call him 'chief, '" Trump told reporters Friday at his Bedford, N.J., golf club.

"Let's leave it up to the president".

Trump named Kelly chief of staff late last month when he also announced former chief of staff Reince Priebus was stepping down. He'll discuss what it's like to uproot your life to go work for the president only to be dismissed 10 days later because you couldn't resist making a joke during an on-the-record interview about Steve Bannon fellating himself. He said that he thinks "the president knows what he is going to do with Steve Bannon", adding that Trump "has an idea of who the leakers are".
